WRONG! Sorry, Guy, I just had to jump in here. I'm only half serious, and appreciate the counsel given.
There IS a limit, not likely to be reached by any normal user, but I did last week; I had 92 or so playlists, with maybe 10 or 12 chapters to each Playlist, and it quit creating chapters. I deleted probably 60 or so of the Playlists.
Two points I'd like to make:
1. I like to create the chapter in the Playlist rather than in the Title (on the HDD). Any deletes then are from the Playlist and not from the source.
2. If in a lengthy project, COPY the Playlist occasionally, same idea as backing up a file on the PC.
Playlists are merely strings of markers to the source, and take up very little space. BUT, because they are only markers pointing to the source, don't delete the source title till you are through with the Playlist or you'll leave nothing for the markers (Playlist) to point to.
And yes, it is a dream to create playlist(s) from any combination of scenes from any of the titles on the hdd. Love it!!!
By the way, each playlist becomes a separate title on the dvd.
Oh, the Playlist is in the Other Functions
